Description The article focuses on the ways of dealing with the crisis (epidemic) in the works of seventeenth-century legal philosophers (Hobbes, Spinoza, Mansvelt, Locke) and works of fiction (Mann, Camus, Capek). It explores the possibilities of their use in the current legal system of the Czech Republic. The article concludes that the methods used in this literature are transferable to the present day and can thus offer at least the contours of rational regulation. Specific limits of the law, arising not only from purely legal reasoning but also from literature (including the early twentieth century in the Czech Republic), are a possible basis for our contemporary legal identity.
